What can I say? I adore Harper's style which mixes vintage and couture garments, re-interpreting and re-accessorising them to create completely new looks, often with crazy over the top jewellery. There is just something about her that means how ever eccentric her outfits she still appears undeniably beautiful.
Harper was born in Columbia but grew up in New York and Europe. She said her sense of style was heavily influenced by her Grandmother. In terms of where she buys her clothes she stated, "I like Yves Saint Laurent, Dior by John Galliano, Lanvin by Alber Elbaz, Alexander McQueen, and Zac Posen. And I love vintage! For shoes, I shop a lot at , sometimes at Prada, and, of course, at Christian Louboutin"
"Currently serving on the board of directors for FIT’s Couture Council, Tata Harper Beauty and Casita Maria, Michelle is a prominent and renowned fixture on the New York scene."
I strongly recommend her tumblr which shows amazing images of herself and also tons of inspirational images too: http://michelleviolyharper.tumblr.com/
These images come for Harper's tumblr.
Although this isn't Haper this shows one of the jewellery ranges she often wear Yaz Bukey. This parisian brand creates some amazing pieces of plexiglass jewellery, i think i need some in my life!

Yet more stunning images of Harper:
Woweeee This pink creation by Victor de Souza(she wears lots by Souza and is often cited as his muse) almost too sensational for words
I'll leave you on a lovely little quotation from Harper: “Because nothing inspiring is flawless or perfect. It’s in the failures, the experiments, and the unique that I find the greatest joy.”
